    A must-see for blues fans

    Here is one of the best bluesmen ever in several different settings over a 19-year span. You see him on a sidewalk, in a bar and in two TV studios. Most of it is solo acoustic, but in 5 songs he plays a Strat with a bassist and drummer. I much prefer the acoustic stuff. You can hear the difference in 'Mojo Hand' which he does acoustic in '60 and electric in '79. The sound and picture quality range from poor to pretty good.
